The Spouses and Children of Lykes Bros. Workers, Also at Risk for Asbestos Exposure
During the heyday of asbestos, the safety and wellbeing of workers were not a priority for company executives, who were mostly following their financial interest. While they were fully aware asbestos was highly carcinogenic to human health, they continued using the mineral, as it was extremely convenient – it had plenty of exploitable properties, as well as a low cost. Striving to cut down on the costs as much as possible, they would not even provide employees with protective equipment to wear on the job and showers were not available either in most facilities. Accordingly, it should not come as a surprise that asbestos fibers often escaped industrial settings and made their way into the household of workers. Subsequently, their family members would inhale or ingest toxic fibers, which could prompt lung cancer or another terrible disease several decades later.
